(Photo by Brett Deering/Getty Images)Yet another major quarterback name has reportedly appeared in the NCAA transfer portal: Oklahoma’s Austin Kendall.That is very interesting news for the Sooners.Assuming Kyler Murray leaves for either the NFL or to start his baseball career, Kendall is the most experienced play on the roster, and a highly-touted player in his own right.It is funny to think about now, but he gave Kyler Murray a real run for the starting job during the off-season.Murray wasn’t named the starter until August 22, and went on to an historic Heisman season.Oklahoma is at the center of numerous transfer rumors for other players, like Alabama’s Jalen Hurts, and brings in the nation’s No. 1 quarterback in Spencer Rattler in its recruiting class, so there’s a chance that Kendall becomes the odd-man out.Austin Kendall has reportedly entered his name into the NCAA Transfer Portal.From the Tulsa World:Oklahoma quarterback Austin Kendall is entering the transfer portal to explore his future options, a source close to the situation informed the Tulsa World on Friday afternoon.Kendall has spent the past three seasons on the Sooners’ roster. As a true freshman, he was OU’s backup quarterback to Baker Mayfield. After sitting out a redshirt season, Kendall held the same role for Kyler Murray in 2018.Kendall was the primary back-up for Baker Mayfield in 2016, and Kyler Murray this fall. He took a redshirt year in 2017, so he should have two years of eligibility remaining. He is also set to graduate, so he would be immediately eligible.The transfer portal doesn’t mean that a player will definitely leave, and if Oklahoma doesn’t bring in another veteran, Kendall will be the favorite to start for the Sooners, since Rattler will be a true freshman and isn’t set to arrive on campus until the summer.Still, the fact that he is considering it at all is quite telling.[Tulsa World]
